“1st visit, definitely won't be our last! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

Visited Bellinis for the first time today, what a fantastic restaurant! My wife and friends had been here on a couple of occasions and raved about the quality of both food and service... They were dead right! Right from the smiley welcome to the efficient service and superb food this Italian restaurant is really top notch.
Our visit was on Mother's Day and being in a party of 10,I thought that service might suffer but no way. Orders for drinks were taken after we had settled at our table and were quickly served.
We all had a starter, main and coffee or pud and to a person we couldn't fault anything. Total bill for food and drinks was £190 for 10 people. Great food, great service and a very reasonable price... What more could you wish for!

“A Mothers Day Favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Just back from another fantastic meal at Bellinis.
We booked mothers day for lunch at 1.30pm. Seated quickly without rush which was refreshing.
Drinks were served well chilled and the wine delicious, 15 pounds for a house sauvignon blanc which at first may seem a little on the high side however its very 'moreish' so worth it.
Starters didn't disappoint and included garlic king prawns, fresh mussels, garlic bread, potatoes skins mixed Italian meats and Melanzane (which is highly recommended if you like aubergine !)
The mains included Penne Cajun, Pollo Cajun, Pollo Dolcelatte, Pollo al Pepe,, Risotto Pescatore and Risotto di Pollo, one of the group had the the chicken breast 'sunday lunch' Veg were perfect and the chips were excellent as always.The yorkshire puddings were nearly as good as Aunty Bessies LOL in fact their were SOOOO much better and taller!
We had some coffee and a couple of Pistachio Custard Gellato - OMG this dessert was amazing ! and Chocolate Fudge cake which was rich and delicious and finally the bill - which worked out around 20 pounds per head including drinks.
Highly recommend this restaurant, we have eaten her previously and been impressed was a little worried about today as its Mothers Day, because it s a popular restaurant I thought we may be hurried or rushed for the table, but that was the opposite, the drinks orders were taken and arrived swiftly - tick, start order taken and passed to kitchen - tick, then mains order taken tick, we had time to enjoy our family lunch to chat and catch up - which essentially is what the italian dining culture is all about.
Than you Bellinis again another perfect lunch. Looking forward to our next booking in April :)

“Great night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

We ate at Bellinis in January for the first time with a group of friends and were so impressed we booked again to go with a different group of friends. The food, service and atmosphere all add up to create a great night; so much so we've booked again...

This was my first visit, I came with a friend for lunch. Excellent service. Comfortable seating & spotless. The meal was just amazing, full of flavour and freshness, and joy of joys hot plates, not something you get in all restaurants. I will definitely return & will highly recommend it to friends.

Thank you to all staff
